Lawctopus along with Ms. Ashima Mandla is organizing an Online Workshop on Drafting Bail Applications on 20th and 27th December 2020.
About Lawctopus Law School
Conceptualized and kick-started in May 2019, and formally launched in March 2020, Lawctopus Law School has taught a wide range of skills to over 3000 law students, young lawyers, professionals, academicians, and business people in the last 10 months. Over 300 students have rated our courses and the average rating is 89/100 and call our online courses a ‘warm’ learning experience!
Our courses on Legal Research and Writing, Contract Drafting and Negotiation, Litigation Basics, ODR, IPRs (with separate modules too for Trademarks, Copyrights, and Patents), and Mooting have transformed how people look at legal education and online legal education. Our free and open webinars have been attended by over 20,000 people.
This has meant wide-ranging industry recognition with tie-ups with law firms like Surana and Surana, Sujata Choudhari IP Attorneys, publishers like Oakbridge, industry bodies like Delhi Management Association, etc. We were also shortlisted for the Agami Prize 2020.
About the Workshop
What will be the best use of your law degree?
Making a lot of money? Or making a difference? Not that they are mutually exclusive but if you were to pick one, what would it be?
Did you know that in India there is only one advocate on average for every 161 inmates?
Even when we have free legal aid clinics in place, ensuring quality legal assistance to these inmates, who by the way, are supposed to be “innocent until proven guilty”, has been a challenge which remains to be overcome.
How would you feel if you acquired the right legal skills to be able to successfully defend their civil liberties and save them a lifetime of misery by helping them secure bail? Pretty amazing, we assume.
We want to help you be the voice of the voiceless and defend the indefensible, to fight for the ones who have been let down by systems, and suffer misfortunes and travesty of justice.
We wish to impart Justice Education to help you achieve your true potential and change the world for the better, one person (one bail application) at a time.
If you are motivated enough, we will ensure that you acquire the skills!
What Will You Learn?
- What are the different kinds of bail applications?
- How to research and draft bail applications?
- What is the jurisdiction for filing bail applications?
- What is the procedure for hearing them?
- How to successfully argue for and secure bail?
You will be able to answer all of these questions after completing this two-day workshop.
You can see the entire workshop schedule here.
